Dance the night away in Tennessee
Nashville draws singers from around the world. Music is in the air, and it makes for the ideal kick off for a weekend getaway in Tennessee for couples. Honky-tonk bars are replete with atmosphere, with their walls still echoing Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, and George Jones. Cycle throughout more than 12,000 acres of parkland, or visit a traditional distillery or brewery. A vibrant startup scene has seen the installation of exciting art galleries, ice cream parlors, and innovative bakeries in recent years.
The next stop on a romantic weekend getaway in Tennessee is Knoxville. Relax in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, paint yourself orange and join the crowds flocking to Neyland Stadium to support the Volunteers, and round off your trip with some local craft beer appreciation.
It would seem that a million songs find a spiritual home in Memphis, and romantic getaways in Tennessee do as well. Smoky pulled pork jives with blues at Beale St. Smokehouse. The unctuous tones of Elvis still beckon from Graceland, and a clutch of other historic sites are enough to keep you enthralled – though don't linger for too long, as the rest of the state awaits.
Romantic getaways in Tennessee aren't complete without riding the Gatlinburg Sky Lift into the Great Smoky Mountains. Carnivalesque atmosphere animates Gatlinburg, which is forever full of fairs and festivals. You'll also find Pigeon Forge nestled in the mountains. Visit world-famous Dollywood to pay homage to your favorite country music star, and enjoy a variety of equally sparkly shows and special events.
